Tokyo Geek's Guide
Manga, Anime, Gaming, Cosplay, Toys, Idols & MoreBook - 2017
Tokyo is ground zero for Japan's popular "geek" or otaku culture—a phenomenon that has now swept across the globe. This is the most comprehensive guide to Tokyo's geeky underworld ever produced. It provides a comprehensive run-down on each major Tokyo district where geeks congregate, shop, play and hang out—from hi-tech Akihabara and trendy Harajuku to newer and lesser-known haunts like chic Shimo-Kita and working-class Ikebukuro. Dozens of iconic shops, restaurants, cafes and clubs in each area are described in loving detail with precise directions to get to each location. Maps, URLs, opening hours and over 400 fascinating color photographs bring you around Tokyo on an unforgettable trip to the centers of Japanese manga, anime and geek culture. Interviews with local otaku experts and people on the street let you see the world from their perspective and provide insights on what is currently happening in Tokyo now (which will eventually impact the rest of the world)!
